The 23-year-old Niece Motorsports driver has been hospitalized since Tuesday due to bile duct complications related to her gallbladder removal in December and Decker’s website said a “medical team is still treating her.”
Decker was set to drive Niece Motorsports’ No. 44 Chevrolet in Saturday’s race. Niece Motorsports confirmed to NBC Sports that Bayley Currey will take her place.
In her second year in the Truck Series, Decker has made 22 starts. She’s competed in three of the five races held this season. She finished fifth in the season-opener at Daytona for her first top five and top-10 finish in the series.

I wanted to let everyone know what’s been going on this week, I’ve been in the hospital for the last four days with bile duct problems. Thank you everyone for the birthday calls/texts/comments! Sadly I won’t be racing this weekend but want to wish my 44 team and all my teammates at Niece Motorsports good luck this weekend! I’ll let everyone know when I’m released and home resting! Thank you 🙏🏼
